    I have the opportunity at another S4 with very low mileage but just out of warranty.

    However after driving it there is a humming noise from the front drivers side wheel area. The noise does increase and decrease with speed.

    Anyone with any experience of such noises? It is going into Audi tomorrow to have a pre extended warranty check before I purchase, I hope it isnt anything serious.

    Thanks in advance

    Any recommendations for Audi independants in the Midlands area? Warwickshire in particular?
